Own a Castle on the Carolina Coast


The Cassina Group, a Charleston, SC real estate team, has listed Mugdock Castle, originally a 19th century church, for $3,895,000.

Typically house hunters, would have to pick castle or beach, not both. But there’s a unique property on Sullivan’s Island, a coastal town near Charleston, S.C., that has a beachfront castle.

Mugdock Castle’s original structure – known as Winter Hall – dates back to the late 19th century when it was an Episcopal Church chapel. Located near Fort Moultrie, the chapel was in the way of the fort’s growth following the war with Spain so the Army acquired the property for a mere $6,000 in 1905. Until 1947, the structure was used as a Post Chapel for Fort Moultrie. The chapel was deconsecrated in 1972 and converted to a private home.

Charleston resident and developer Vince Graham purchased the property in 2002 with the intent of moving the building to his I’On development in Mount Pleasant and restoring it as an Episcopal Church for the community. The Sullivan’s Island Town Council prohibited the move, and Graham left the building at its original site.
